1. They must beat Washington.
2. They will need the Saints to lose either Monday night to Miami or next week to Carolina.
3. They need the 49ers to beat Houston on Sunday.
4. The Vikings need to lose to Green Bay.
If these four things happen, Philadelphia will be heading back to the NFC playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons.
